From field engineers to the engineers who design, build and maintain our transmission network, electric stations, gas and electric distribution systems and generating stations, PSEG employs a diverse team of engineers who are essential to everything we do to deliver safe and reliable electric and gas energy to our customers.
In recognition of National Engineers Week, we salute all PSEG engineers – represented by a few colleagues who were asked recently why they like working at PSEG:

I enjoy the opportunity to get engaged with so many types of projects, including transmission and distribution upgrades, solar farms on landfills, battery storage pilot projects and offshore wind. I work with great and diverse teams, take on challenging work, participate in employee resource groups and grow my leadership ability every day.
At PSEG I have found people that help me grow professionally and make me feel listened to and appreciated for the work I do. Here, everyone is comfortable sharing ideas and concerns. PSEG offers many opportunities to give back to the different communities throughout the state.
As an engineer, my passion is to solve problems. Working at PSEG has fueled this passion by allowing me to improve myself while solving problems. It’s a blessing to be employed with a company that shares the values of safety and reliability, while providing the opportunity to make a positive impact in the community.
I enjoy working at PSEG because of the company’s solid core values and the opportunity to grow in my career without being bound to one field or specialty. I can see myself working my entire career and retiring from PSEG, and, while this may not sound like a big deal, we live in a world where companies go out of business overnight.
Renewable energy and the reliability concerns that accompany it sparked my interest in electrical engineering. I believe the engineer’s mission is to innovate solutions to society’s most pressing problems. At PSEG, I am part of a team that is committed to improving the reliability and resiliency of the electric network it operates, while making strides in combating climate change by promoting carbon-free electric generation.
As a student attending NJIT, my long-term goals were to establish a career that a would have a societal impact. Since joining PSEG as an engineer, I’ve realized that I have a unique opportunity to do so. Our roles affect a large number of people and our performance is directly related to the safety and comfort of others. Knowing I serve not just my family and friends, but also my community, has been an amazing experience.
